. president obama and prime minister netanyahu attended the united nations general assembly in new york, but at different times. the white house insisted it was a scheduling issue, not a snub. no meetings, no handshakes. but today a follow-up phone call that a senior administration official told cnn lasted more than 20 minutes. in a statement released by the white house, the conversation included "a range of security issues," the president reaffirmed his commitment to israel security. and the two leaders were in full agreement on preventing iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. prime minister netanyahu has been pressuring the u.s. to lay down a so-called red line on iran that would prompt military action. at the u.n. he used a prop to drive home his point. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: while some have accused the prime minister of pressuring the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white
-and-run is complete. at this very hour president obama's back in washington after fleeing new york city and the united nations general assembly. that means yet again he's free to resume his daily routine of fundraising, hobnobbing with celebrities and campaigning. as we reported last night during his brief visit to new york he found time to sit down for an interview with, yes, the ladies of "the view." today he cleared a few minutes on his schedule to deliver a quick speech at the u.n., however declined to meet with a single world leader while on the ground. that makes him the first president in more than two decades to avoid his counterparts on a u.n. trip. in addition, he uttered the word "terrorist" only once today. ironically the same amount of times that he tweeted about the ongoing nfl/referee labor dispute. it's statistics like these that show where the president's priorities lie. let's see, whoopi goldberg and joy behar, trumping benjamin netanyahu. if you needed more proof that this president is not interested in siding with our allies in israel, it came yesterday. this is the american delega
in washington. tonight, president obama leads for the search of killers for justice for the murder of four americans in the line of duty. mitt romney, meanwhile, continues his desperate attempt to justify his effort to exploit chris stevens and the others. for the critics of romney's supporters, what made him do it? the hawkish urge to address the neocon handlers or could it be both? president obama benefits from the national security and foreign policy advisers, many of them career professionals. his rival is surrounded by campaign hot shots imagine trying to repeat or to reap on the spot joining us is nia-malika henderson. let's listen to the president. >> what i want all of you to know is that we are going to bring those who killed our fellow americans to justice. i want people around the world to hear me, to all those who would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished. it will not dim the light of the values that we proudly present to the rest of the world. no act of violence shakes the resolve of the united states of america. >> and the president is on the case and sent two u.s
. more than that, i wish i could get wendy and her job back. barak obama and mitt romney will slug it out and talk about economy and jobs and what they'll do to make things better. i truly believe president obama wishes things were better. but after watching his plans fail for four years, i doubt he will make them better. i do think mitt romney understands if they don't have a job they can't buy a hamburger and if wendy's isn't selling enough hamburgers and the ever-rising food prices they will close people like my special friend wendy won't have a job. i don't expect barak obama or mitt romney to fix it all by themselves. and i know they can't personally keep every windy's open. and so my friend wendy will have a job. i would like bark obama and mitt romney to be able to look wendy in the eyes and convince her and me that they really understand who she is. and she matters as much as any banker or broker on wall street that got balled out of their trouble it is not just jobs, it is people. they don't care about the politics. they just want to feel good again. and investigators are not say
.s. and israel. >> reporter: that squabble led to a one hour phone call between president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu late last night east coast time early morning in israel after israeli officials complained that he was being snubbed by the white house. on sunday and then again wednesday, prime minister net railed against the u.s. for not taking a tougher stance on iran's nuclear program. >> if iran knows that there's no red line, if iran knows that there's no deadline, what will it do exactly what it's doing. it is continuing without any interference. >> reporter: then came reports in the israeli press that the white house turned down a meeting with when president obama and the prime minister attend the u.n. general assembly in new york later this month. they're simply not in the city at the same time the white house explained. this is the first time that benjamin netanyahu has come to the united states as prime minister and not met with president obama. the two have had their tense moments before in an oval office meeting last year, benjamin netanyahu appeared to lectur
and three administrations, the obama white house. a midder middle east diplomacy for msnbc and washington institute. dennis, let's talk about what netanyahu signaled he's doing today, demanding an ultimatum to iran on its nuclear program something the administration, the white house, has insisted they needambiguous. who is right here? >> imnot sure there is as wide a gap as you think. i believe what you're seeing is an agreement on the objective of making certain that iran cannot have nuclear weapons and then also i think agreeing that you have to come up with some kind of threshold to know when the objective of prevention has a meaning and it doesn't lose its content. i do think where the prime minister's coming from is, he wants to put, i think, a premium on having a clear definition of what's the point past which if iran crosses that particular line or tloesh hohreshold you'r longer in a position to prevent them. my guess he'll focus on why it's unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapons capability and he'll speak in effect to the world about coming together on not just having ope

lead the nation with liberty, great and gravity. >> mr. obama was praised by a litany of people from his favorite television network. >> sly like a fox, i guess, but the reality is that those who are beyond the purview of fox television don't see it that way, the american public, look at the difference between president obama and candidate for the presidency, mitt romney, mr. obama could have taken the bait on 60 minutes, and say, look, i'll let the american people decide that, he was kra shus and grateful. mitt romney, on the other hand, uses a day of national mourning and galvanizing grief for the american soul. as a result of that, to undermine the very virtues that we want to say to the rest of the world. beyond the fox news purview, those on the right wing, mr. romney does not look like an adroit and careful leader. >> have you ever -- >> i just want to take this aback, i disagree with the premise here and i don't want mitt romney and the gop to get -- mitt romney really blew it. and instead of having the courage and grace to come out and say, you know what? i may have spoken to
, barack obama saying that he doesn't really consider egypt an ally or an enemy at this point, that it really is time will tell, this is a work in progress. that really is kind of a stunning change of position from the white house perspective. >> reporter: i think that that statement took many people by surprise and shocked them a great deal. part of the anti-u.s. sentiment, and there is an anti-u.s. sentiment in the clashes today and in the protests on tuesday and in the various countries where the protests are taking plaes, the u.s. has been -- egypt has been a major ally for the u.s. to the extent that five different u.s. administrations supported our dictator, mubarak. i think the white house realized, because over the past few minutes i've been reading statements, the white house realized what a shocking statement that was and it looks like they're trying to back pedal from this idea that egypt has been demoted as an ally. i think everybody right now feels how sensitive the situation is and understands this political jockeying for power and again to reiterate, it's -- the

have been pointing out. i think president obama will address that issue as well. and again, there is some concern about how the united states' relationship will evolve moving forward with libya. i think you'll hear president obama address that as well. the fact that officials in libya so far have been cooperative with the united states. i think you're going to hear very strong words from the president when he speaks in just a few minutes. >> all right, kristen. thank you. at the white house this morning. >> busy morning around here. we want to get the other top stores. >> good morning. chicago's school system is at a standstill for a third day. nbc's kevin tibbles is there with the latest. >> reporter: a third straight day of empty classrooms, parents juggling jobs and kids, picketing on the street and still no end in sight. a sea of red in chicago as thousands of striking teachers crowd city streets in a massive show of solidarity. >> we did not pick this fight. we did not start this fight. >> reporter: while days of intense negotiating have people disagrees, kids will onc

to that red line? >> oh, it's incredibly important. and i think that's one of the reasons that president obama is not allowing prime minister netanyahu of israel to bully him into setting up red lines with iran because we don't want to give up our option on how and when to go to war and for another country to try to dictate that to us is very sensitive. >> we've seen the u.s. embassy attacked and we have seen u.s. embassies all attacked before. the ihostage crisis and in august 7th, 1998, 224 people died in attack on kenya and tanzan tanzania. is the attack in benghazi any different than those attacks? >> every attach tack is a bit different, but you're on, you're on the right track that all of these attacks were well planned. they weren't spontaneous. this was not an attack over the film trailer that defamed the prophet of islam. this was a group that is close to al qaeda, that had been looking for an opportunity to attack our diplomatic presence on the ground in tripoli and found it, or, excuse me, in libya and found it. >> all right, ambassador, we appreciate your time this morning. certain
president obama and to compare mitt romney. and in that comparison, romney has been failing. obama, whatever anybody feels about his policies, people understand that he knows the issues. that he's a steady hand at the tiller. and that he is not an irresponsible person. he's a mature leader. romney has been all over the map. people don't know what he really believes in. and frequently he has behaved irresponsibly. so he's failing that comparison test. >> do you feel like the foreign policy experience weakness, the on-paper weakness of this ticket, has been magnified in a way that's going to be hard for them to reverse? >> oh, absolutely. what shocks me, you know, romney has no foreign policy background, but he's an intelligent guy. he's had plenty of time to get up to speed on these major issues he knew he'd have to confront in the campaign, but more important, he'd have to confront if he was president of the united states. he has not demonstrated he has mastered any of these issues. >> even when it comes to the mores of appropriate and serious behavior when confronted with a violent attack o
